The colonists claimed that they were being taxed unfairly and were not given proper representation. These acts and other subsequent taxation policies led to the famous phrase "taxation without representation." The colonists that were making this claim were individuals that were associated with the Sons of Liberty like Samuel Adams and other thinkers of the time like Thomas Paine.
